Nine Coaches Waiting : The twisty, unputdownable romantic suspense classic Paperback / softback
by Mary Stewart
A thrilling, twisty tale of a dangerous romance set in the heart of mid-century Savoy, from the original queen of romantic suspense. 'Mary Stewart is magic' New York Times Linda Martin understands what is to be lonely: her parents died when she was young, and she was raised in an orphanage.
When she is hired as a governess to the orphaned young Philippe, Comte de Valmy, Linda finds a kindred spirit in the lonely little boy.
But Philippe is the heir to a vast estate in Savoy, and his dangerously handsome uncle may be willing to kill to ensure that Philippe never inherits it . . .
